you're saying if you disable this sensor, the rom becomes "smoother"?

correct me if im wrong, but isnt the proximity sensor responsible for turning the display off while having a phone call?

so if you disable this sensor, the display wont turn off, eating up battery and if youre unlucky youre pressing some soft-buttons onscreen with your ear while talking.

this is for broken proximity sensors not for working
you can search about this problem over xda
lot of people have broken proximity issue

when broken proximity sensor
when some one try to make call screen goes off (wtf)
press any button did not wake-up screen :/

if you want to off your screen when you calling
you can press lock button
